3 items left

Product Description: This book was written as a textbook for the flats fishing class at Brevard Community College, and consists of two main parts.

A Word or Two About Geography: Some unique geography helps explain the world class fishing opportunities available in Space Coast waters. 

And just what is this “lagoon system”: 

The Indian River Lagoon system, 156 miles long, consists of the Indian River Lagoon, the Mosquito Lagoon, and the Banana River Lagoon. The Mosquito Lagoon lies the farthest north, in Volusia and northern Brevard counties. The northern end of the Indian River Lagoon also lies in Volusia county, but extends south all the way to St. Lucie County, where it ends at the St. Lucie Inlet. This book only covers the section in Volusia and Brevard counties. Lastly, the Banana River Lagoon lies entirely within Brevard county.

The lagoon system is the most ecologically diverse estuary in North America, and harbors over 100 species of fish. Red drum, black drum, spotted seatrout, snook, tarpon, jack crevalle, ladyfish, mangrove snapper, and sheepshead are the primary species anglers target in this area. The Space Coast offers the finest shallow water sight fishing opportunities for big redfish anywhere in the universe.

From Patrick Air Force Base south to Sebastian Inlet a live worm rock reef runs along the beach, clearly visible and often exposed at low tide. These rocks host a variety of fish, including pompano, sheepshead, whiting, croakers, snook, and many others, and support an outstanding surf fishery.
